Sophos Security Threat Trends and Predictions 2015 Report

By James Lyne, Global Head of Security Research, Sophos

It's that time of year and today Sophos released its 2015 security predictions report. The Security Threat Trends 2015 shares the ten big things Sophos experts believe will have a significant impact on cyber security in 2015 and beyond. Please view the full report for context, however, it examines the following:

  1. Exploit mitigations reduce the number of useful vulnerabilities.
  2. Internet of Things attacks move from proof-of-concept to mainstream risks.
  3. Encryption becomes standard, but not everyone is happy about it.
  4. More major flaws in widely-used software that had escaped notice by the security industry over the past 15 years.
  5. Regulatory landscape forces greater disclosure and liability, particularly in Europe.
  6. Attackers increase focus on mobile payment systems, but stick more to traditional payment fraud for a while.
  7. Global skills gap continues to increase, with incident response and education a key focus.
  8. Attack services and exploit kits arise for mobile (and other) platforms.
  9. The gap between ICS/SCADA and real world security only grows bigger.
  10. Interesting rootkit and bot capabilities may turn up new attack vectors.
